Those using BBM Protected as an instant messaging service, will now have all of their messages encrypted in transit to prevent interception. 

This security measure ensures that highly sensitive corporate data can be sent between employees with full confidence.  The new system builds upon the security already offered by BlackBerry which is currently used by many global organisations.

The additional protection will work with the standard BBM app so users do not have to upgrade hardware, download extra applications or install new servers. BBM Protected can also be simply added to existing IT policies.

BBM protected is available today on BlackBerry 10 (BB10)and BlackBerry OS. For those using BlackBerry Balance IOS or Android, the update will be available later this year. So if security on your Android matters to you then watch this space.
